Ideas and Identities: Supporting Equity in Cooperative Mathematics Learning
Esmonde, Indigo
Review of Educational Research, v79 n2 p1008-1043 2009
This review considers research related to mathematics education and cooperative learning, and it discusses how teachers might assist students in cooperative groups to provide equitable opportunities to learn. In this context, equity is defined as the fair distribution of opportunities to learn, and the argument is that identity-related processes are just as central to mathematical development as content learning. The link is thus considered between classroom social ecologies, the interactions and positional identities that these social ecologies make available, and student learning. The article closes by considering unresolved questions in the field and proposing directions for future research. (Contains 3 notes and 2 figures.)
